Celebrate Children's Week

Children’s Week is a national celebration that recognises the talents, skills, achievements and rights of children.

We are excited to help children do this in Boroondara through free and fun events and activities held across our libraries, parks and gardens, as well as our community centres, from 22 to 30 October.

To celebrate Children’s Week, we invite you to pack a picnic morning tea and bring your family and teddy bear to explore the newly redeveloped Victoria Park Regional Playground in Kew on Wednesday 26 October. Join us for a free magic show, dancing and exercise activities, and a teddy bear health check from a maternal and child health nurse.

The City of Boroondara strives to be a place where children and young people are valued, safe and actively participate in our community. We provide a range of services, resources and programs all year to support families and caregivers to keep children educated, happy and healthy.

Our Boroondara Families digital hub has information about Council services including maternal and child health, immunisation, libraries, supported playgroups and kinder enrolment.
